In the Press – October 2015

Stephen Colbert news When news stories fall through the cracks, we here at Colbert News Hub find them for a post we call, In The Press.


Hi Hubsters! Can you believe two months have already passed since the premiere? Things seem to be settling down at The Late Show With Starring Stephen Colbert. The shows are becoming much more consistent and I already see some favorite regular segments emerge (personal favorites: Bedtime Stories and The Hungry For Power Games).

But let’s get right to it, because there are a lot of articles this month! The media has been paying a lot of attention to The Late Show’s unique blend of guests, so you’ll find a bunch of articles about that. You’ll find quotes by Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel weighing in on how Stephen has been doing so far. There’s a lot of talk of ad revenue and ratings of course. There are people getting angry at Stephen including the usual suspect, Fox News. There’s also a great article by someone who knew Stephen at The Second City, and a fun article about “achievement beards.”

In The Press – April 2015 Edition

Stephen Colbert news When news stories fall through the cracks, we here at Colbert News Hub find them for a post we call, In The Press.


With April behind us, there are only four months left until Late Show with Stephen Colbert starts! (!!) Sadly, that also means there are only three months left of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. For now though, the good news is that Jon has been giving new interviews, and those are always a treat!

In this edition of In The Press, we also catch up with The Nightly Show and The Late Late Show, the new kids on the block of late-night TV, who are still trying to find their footing, as well as their audience. Have you guys been watching either (or both) show(s) regularly?

Finally, late night writers talk about improv and submitting writing packets… and stir up some controversy!
